From the Author:

I wrote this book after I gave birth to my son, which was also the time I decided to become a stay-at-home-mom. One evening while I was sitting with my son, I decided to check my work email. For some reason I still had access to my work email account and simply wanted to see what was going on with a few clients I had left behind.
As I read through the work email, which contained various status updates of different clients, I noticed that one of my prior clients had returned. To see that one of my most successful clients had returned infuriated me. I was upset and disappointed and blamed myself for her return. I thought that maybe I blamed the abuser too much and didn't let her know that she has the power to change her future. Maybe I should have explained that bad relationships not only come from dating the wrong man, but are also influenced by the decisions we make before, during and after the relationship.
While I thought about her, I began to write the many things that I wanted all women to know about bad relationships. I wrote what I had learned from various situations and people I met along the way. I want this book to be a guide that will lead women to healthy relationships, because bad relationships are produced out of the bad decisions we make along the way.  
This book is like a friend who will give you their honest opinion without sugar-coating the truth. This book has been made out of the love and compassion I have for women who have been hurt and don't want to be another victim. This is my first book, but it is not my last. Thank you for reading. 

About the Author:

Born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Katha D. Blackwell knew at a young age that abuse was wrong. After years of seeing women in her family go through abusive relationships, Katha decided to make it her goal to help women.
After graduating from high school, Katha went to Michigan State University(MSU) and became one of the many field researchers for the Violence Against Women Initiative. As a field researcher, Katha visited the homes of abused women and collected data for a longitudinal study. In 2003, Katha graduated from MSU with a Bachelors degree in Political Science Pre-law. 
After getting settled in Illinois, Katha began to seek more knowledge about domestic violence so she obtained 40 hours of domestic violence training and began to volunteer at a local women's shelter as a Hotline Shift Leader. Katha eventually found employment as a Program Assistant for the Majorie Kovler Torture Treatment Center in Chicago.
In Fall 2004, Katha started graduate school at The University of Chicago (UofC) where she majored in Social Service Administration. Throughout her time at UofC, Katha maintained full-time employment at a local domestic violence shelter, as a Residential Counselor and fulfilled her field practicum requirements as a Family Therapist and an Adult Domestic Violence Counselor. Upon graduating with a Masters degree from UofC, Katha continued to work with victims of domestic violence providing full-time individual and group counseling services.
The key reason Katha is writing this book is because she wants to help better the lives of women. Katha has been the counselor, the therapist, the volunteer, the case manager and with all those roles Katha constantly had to sugarcoat the fact that bad relationships can be avoided. As a writer, Katha can give the honest and direct instruction that is needed and will empower many women. 
Katha currently resides in Georgia with her husband Eric, their son, Elias, and their daughter, Eliana.
